Cell Respiration: Controlled release of energy from organic molecules (most often glucose) in order to generate ATP.
ATP: Adenosine TriPhosphate - Energy carrying molecule. Carries measured doses of energy. Used to facillitate many cell reactions.
NADH: A second energy carrying molecule in the mitochondria.
FADH2: A third energy carrying molecule in the mitochondria.

c. Electron Transport
a. Fats converted to fatty acids & glycerol by digestion.
b. Glycerol converted to pyruvate.
c. Fatty Acids converted to Acetyl-CoA.
d. Both fat parts can then be used in Kreb's cycle.
